Are you a pioneer, looking for innovation? Would you like to meet inspiring people who really have something to say? Is it time for confrontation and intensification? Do you long for time and space to develop yourself? Then this is the moment to apply to the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht (NL).
The Jan van Eyck Academie is an international post- academic art institute that offers space to ambitions, plans and work of artists, designers, writers, curators, thinkers. The Jan van Eyck Academie has a long history of recurrent development. Now, once more, the institute finds itself at the crossroads of change, which will be shaped with its new participants, from 1 January 2013.
That is why the Jan van Eyck Academie is looking for pioneers, trailblazers with the ambition to make the academy into the post-academy of the future.

Ellen Røed is working at the videoroom at BEK in her preparation of the the annual symposium of The Norwegian Artistic Research Fellowship Programme that will be hosted at KHIB this autumn. She has prepared, together with MIchelle Teran, a moderated discussion that during two days will use short demonstrations to interrogate researchmethods that are based on experimentation, collaboration, and storytelling. On this occasion, Ellen and Christian Blom will attempt to restage elements from the process of making the exhibition ‘On balancing’ that they developed this spring for the Borealis music festival. ‘On balancing’ was co-produced by BEK.
